Globally, 5,454,131 persons have died in Covid-19. In Sudan, 3,340 persons have died in the pandemic. And 47 272 confirmed cases of COVID-19. It can be safely assumed that the Covid-19 situation has not improved under the current situation in Sudan.
Globally, as of 5 January 2022, there have been 293 750 692 confirmed cases of COVID-19, including 5 454 131 deaths, reported to WHO. As of 5 January 2022, a total of 9 118 223 397 vaccine doses have been administered.
In Sudan, from 3 January 2020 to 5 January 2022, there have been 47 272 confirmed cases of COVID-19 with 3 340 deaths, reported to WHO. As of 4 January 2022, a total of 3 209 469 vaccine doses have been administered.
According to UNICEF as the year progressed, COVID-19 cases increased particularly in the urban east. By mid-June, 20,925 suspected and 10,431 confirmed cases were recorded with over 73 per cent of these in Khartoum state. 702 deaths were recorded with a worryingly high proportion (72 per cent) of these outside of Khartoum, indicating a lack of medical capacity away from the capital.
This illustrates a theme throughout the pandemic; the lack of comprehensive data on the current situation, and it can be assumed that the vast majority of cases went unreported due to stigma, lack of awareness or lack of personal need for medical care.
